Doting father Adam Busby surprised four of his quintuplets with a new adorable family member as his wife Danielle Busby continues to battle her mystery illness. The couple kept the newest addition a secret for a while.
The Busby family rose to fame when Adam and Danielle Busby became parents to the first set of quintuplets in the United States. Fans have since caught up with the large family through their famous TLC show, "Outdaughtered."
The reality show has gone on for seven seasons, and many have watched Adam and Danielle navigate their huge family of six daughters. However, just when we thought the couple has their hands full, they introduced a new family member.

DANIELLE'S MYSTERY ILLNESS
For the past months, the family has been facing a tough time because of Danielle's health issues. It all started in November when Adam took to Instagram to reveal to fans that his wife was undergoing some tests.
The patriarch shared that Danielle was having an invasive procedure to get to the bottom of a mystery illness and urged fans to pray for their family. Since then, Danielle has been in and out of the hospital undergoing several examinations.
Through it all, the couple has kept fans updated about her health status through the show and social media. In an April episode of "Outdaughtered," viewers saw Danielle return home from the hospital with a heart monitor.
The emotional episode showed the 37-year-old revealing the device to their daughters and explaining what was happening with her heart. She noted that she didn't want to scare her kids but had to get answers about her health.
ON HAVING MORE KIDS
In an interview with ET Online, Danielle and Adam shed more light on the latter's health issues. The mother-of-six mentioned that she suspected autoimmune disease, but nothing was for sure.
Despite Adam and Danielle's decision not to have another child, the couple couldn't help but help add a new member to their family.
The duo also touched on the subject of expanding their family as they gushed about how lovely it has been to film season 8 of "Outdaughtered" with their girls ― Blayke, Ava, Olivia, Hazel, Riley, and Parker.
While Adam and Danielle are having a swell time with their kids on set, they are unsure how the next season would play out with the girls. However, they are certain about not having another child. Danielle explained:
"I had a hysterectomy a year and a half ago. There's no more, but if we ever want a little boy around, we just go grab those two little nephews of ours, then we have them for a day."
A NEW ADDITION
Despite Adam and Danielle's decision not to have another child, the couple couldn't help but help add a new member to their family. In a recent YouTube video shared on their channel, Adam surprised his girls with a puppy named Gus.
The doting father explained in the clip that it all started when he and Danielle met the little guy for the first time, and his wife immediately fell in love. However, they weren't sure about bringing him home, so they hesitated.
After the girls were disappointed about not having a pet and Danielle couldn't sleep without thinking about the dog, Adam finally decided to get Gus. However, he made sure to make it a surprise for the family.
Since four of the quints were at cheerleader camp while Blayke and Hazel were in Louisana with their grandparents, Adam took the puppy to cheer camp. The girls screamed for joy and cuddled the pet, grateful to have him.
After the visit to cheer camp, Adam and Danielle made the girls promise to keep Gus a secret until Blayke and Hazel returned from Louisana. They also decided to keep it hush from their fans for weeks, so they posted nothing online
Once the girls got home, it was a double celebration as Blayke scooped the pup in her hands and didn't let go. Danielle had to get the dog out of her hand and hand it to Hazel. But it didn't last long as the big sister went after the dog again.
The Busbys undoubtedly have a lot of fun with their full house. However, they weren't immune from the extra parenting burdens the pandemic brought along. In a previous interview, Danielle described the pandemic as "eye-opening."
The fitness instructor revealed that the pandemic disrupted their usual routine. They had to adjust to find new ways to keep the girls entertained while trying to find joy as a family in the little things.
